Israel officials filmed confiscating elderly Palestinian vendors’ goods in Jerusalem

Israeli officials were captured on film confiscating goods from Palestinian vendors in Jerusalem’s Old City, reported Haaretz.

The Jerusalem city inspectors “were videotaped seizing merchandise from elderly Palestinian women, then chasing them away from the Damascus Gate plaza”, the paper reported.

According to Haaretz, “the women arrive at the site every Friday from the West Bank and East Jerusalem” to “sell fresh vegetables, olives and grape leaves, either from their own gardens or that they pick elsewhere”.

Some of the Israeli officials “were documented approaching the women seated outside Damascus Gate and trying to confiscate their goods. In the video the women hasten to put away their goods to try to prevent them from being seized”.

“While the vendors were being chased off, some of their goods fell to the ground, and several women could be seen picking up some olives. In at least one instance an inspector seized one of the women’s wares,” Haaretz added.
